Is math your strong suit?
No, it's not my math that is wrong, it is your reasoning that is wrong.
Using your example of 4%, your assuming that thru the union strike you got a full 4% by only going on strike. This is almost never the case.
Most often the companies provide an offer, of say in your example, 3%, then further negotiations might lead to another 0.05% and then they wind up striking for the last 0.05%, for example.
This is the part that had no economic sense.
Maybe you should go back to school and learn to reason with a bit more objectivity,,,eh !!
eerrr that should read 0.5% (not 0.05%)
